Re: Problem with sharing a printer in VISTA

Seems odd though I have exactly the same setup but both are dual cpu's and
have no trouble. Other than verifying you are administrator via control
panel, I don't know what else to say. This Vista print subsystem is really
quirky and the messages so indescriptive you don't know what to do. You
might call your pc maker I think they are your first level of support and it
should be free if you just bought your pcs within a year, but they usually
refer you to the printer maker as having a driver issue, but it may prove
fruitful talking to both anyway.

Run Add Printer as administrator

printui /ip or printui /il on Start Run

Or right click Add Printer Run as administrator

Re: Problem with sharing a printer in VISTA
Posted: 10-29-2008, 07:18 PM
Just saw the following posted by Sam, do you have uac off?

"Hi all. Well I finally found the answer. I found another person on the
net who had the same problem and someone posted and gave the answer.
That person had uac off like me and the answer given was. You cannot
install a network shared printer with uac off. So I turned it back on
and it worked. Hope this helps someone.
